Kenyatta University acknowledges that Intellectual Property (IP) management is an important asset in operation of University’s triad core business of teaching, research and community services. The University therefore established Intellectual Property Rights Unit to spearhead issues of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). New knowledge can lead to innovative breakthrough and new technologies that form bases of new industrial ventures. Legal protection through IPR is a key step in the process of industrial development and commercialization. Literal and artistic works play a big role in knowledge creation. Intellectual Property Rights Unit therefore deals with Industrial properties, Copyrights and Plant Breeders’ Rights .
